MJR has abandoned its plan to take over this location. Cinemark is currently building a new complex across the street at Southland Mall.

It was announced this week that MJR would be taking over this site and it is expected to open by Christmas 2014 after an extensive renovation.

The Spotlight was opened by father and son, Ken and Jake Stocker, who intended to open multiple lower-priced theaters and drive-in's under the Spotlight name throughout the area. It has since closed, and their plan obviously, yet sadly, didn't work out. :( Let's keep hoping for a successful future for the Taylor 10.

Went to this place at about 8 p. m tonight, and the doors were locked , the lights were turned off and all the outside signage has been removed. Even though i do not have an exact date, this theatre is closed at the present time. They are have not been posting movie times on their website for about the last month.

This was one of the first, if not the first, theaters that were built with the art-deco-style Star architecture, which soon after inspired Loews to build new locations in this architecture, in fact, several Loews theaters built in the early-90's are (almost) identical to this theater in exterior architecture (ironic that half of Star's shares were later sold to Loews). It is now the Spotlight Taylor 10 and the west side (facing the shopping center) has been repainted in a yellow-ish color while the east side (facing Racho Road) was untouched and there is still a STAR THEATRE labelscar on that end.

As of late 2009, the AMC Star Taylor 10 is closed. Currently nothing has been planned for it to reopen as something. I believe everything is still in there since it closed recently.

AMC Star Taylor shut its doors forever tonight, 12/13/09. I will try to upload photos soon. Goodbye Taylor :-(.

The Star Taylor was to be the place to see movies downriver until the MJR Theatre in Southgate opened. You could not get a seat in this place on the weekend. It was retrofitted with stadium seating during the early part of 1998 in time for the opening of Godzilla. This theatre was responsible for the decline of AMC theatres downriver, it is kind of funny know that it too is owned by AMC Theatres.

As of February 3, 2006, it is now the AMC Star Taylor. The founders of the Star chain, Barrie and Jim Loeks, sold their 50% stake in the chain to Loews Cineplex in 2002. In June of 2005, Loews agreed to a merger with AMC, with AMC becoming the parent company. The merger was completed on January 27, 2006, and on February 3, the Star Theatres came to be listed in the newspapers under the new combined name. This theatre became the AMC Star Taylor.

AMC enterred the Metro Detroit market about twenty years earlier, buying out the Nicholas George theatres. As is their custom, the theatres were renamed to reflect their parent. So, the name change comes as no real surprise. A few things will remain.

For now, the ticket stubs still bear the Loews logo. That may take a while to fix, since AMCs receipts are not the same size as Loews receipts. Also, they still have Loews cups and bags at the refreshment counter, and probably will until they run out. For now, Stars Theatres will continue to use Fandango as their online ticketing agent, while AMC will continue to use Movietickets.

com. I suspect that the division in online ticketing agents represents outstanding contracts (and perhaps even financial interests in the online companies) and will be unified when the contracts run out.

This Star Theatre, built in 1989, was part of a great theatre building plan sought out by Loeks-Star theatres in 1989-1990. This was one of six multiplexes built around a similar design and layout. This location was originally built as an eight screen, but was later expanded with two screens later in the 90s, and also retrofitted its auditoriums with stadium seating.
